  • Trials

    British Online Archives (BOA) offers all academic institutions and many non-academic institutions (i.e. national libraries) trials of BOA collections, starting at a minimum of 30 calendar days. All trial requests must be submitted to BOA by the university or public librarian on behalf of the institution. Access is granted via IP address, proxy IP, or federated access using Shibboleth or Open Athens.

  • Pricing

    All pricing can be provided upon request. Prices are generally based on a one-time/perpetual access model. Annual subscriptions can also be negotiated.

  • Bundles

    We offer institutions the opportunity to bundle collections together. These bundles are sold at a discounted price.

  • Jisc DAC Scheme (UK Only)

    BOA is a member of the Jisc Digital Archival Collections Group Purchasing Scheme. This provides all member institutions with significant discounts on 20 of our most popular collections. The collections have the potential to be further discounted throughout the academic year depending on the number of purchases we receive through the scheme.

  • Non-UK Representatives

    In addition to our UK-based sales and account management staff, BOA is also represented by territory-specific sales agency staff in North America, Australasia, China, and Japan. Further information on our global agents can be found here.

  • Usage Statistics

    All institutions can acquire COUNTER version 5 compliant statistics. These statistics can also be accessed during a trial. The statistics can be provided upon request or can be downloaded directly from our access management portal.
